    I know it hasn't been filmed yet, but I'm still buzzing as Daniela and I are going!

    What do we have to expect from episode 3? well I've been researching (googling for 3 seconds on wikipedia) at which episodes were filmed third in each series (first 6 only). These are the results...

    1: Waiting For God
    2: Stasis Leak
    3: Backwards
    4: Meltdown
    5: Holoship
    6: Rimmerworld


    Hmmmmmmm :-)


    who else is going?

    Hmmm indeed. With the exception of Statis Leak, they are all pretty mediocre episodes. BUT, that's not to say this one will be!!

    We look forward to your set report. The gazpacho soup ones have been particularly brilliant. No pressure...

    I don't think it's starbug, it's the Series XI reboot of Season 1 with a few minor changes...

    i don't actually mind them working with green screen aslong as its for effects or certain location

    Something i can't complain about BTE was the big scale CGI locations which actually helped the scale of the ship

    I've always considered Backwards and Holoship to be strong episodes, and I've always really enjoyed Rimmerworld and Meltdown.

    To be fair the classic series even during 1-6 used blue screens from time to time without being heavy on computer effects, likewise did X use green screens similarly for certain effects.

    Backwards? Really?

    I was always amazed at the moaning of plot holes in Lemons but failed to notice the BILLIONS of them in the lazily written Backwards.

    Nope, just think it was a gimmicky episode.

    It is a gimmicky episode, it can't be denied, and it's full of plot holes. But we could probably unpick a million plot holes from every episode. I rate episodes by how funny I find them and Backwards it very funny, lots of visual gags and some very clever comedy. I do also like Lemons too hehe.

    Robert is very excited for it. Could it be the multiple Kryten episode? He's looking forward to it because everyone else is going to go through what he does...?

    The episode were they all get Krytened up I must confess I have my reservations about as it does sound gimmicky.....that said the idea could be handled better then it sounds but I'd be lying if I didn't say I have my doubts.

    on paper it does sound a bit suss, but we don;t know what angle they are going for. It could be a small part in an epic story!

    Daniela and I are going to go on a Hammer Horror walk near Pinewood, as they shot lots of those films around there, especially Black Park which is next to the studio. Its gonna be a good one!

    I am also abit cautious about the everyone is kryten episode because i agree it does sound like a self aware gimmick and i worry how far doug will go for comedy

    i am alot more cautious this series then i was series X as i didn't feel it was quite the return to form some others did because while it was an improvement over 8 and BTE it still felt like alot of it needed ironing out

    I think I mentioned it in another thread, but I agree. I dont think they should pander to the fans as we only make up a small percentage of the audience and wouldn't want to alienate the rest of the casual viewers with in-jokes and callbacks!

    the only way I can think of them for them to do an all-kryten episode, is for the crew to go inside a Better Than Life game again, but one that's hacked/glitched which makes everyone live out one person's life... Kryten!
